Mehendi is an integral part of most Indian festivals. Since Diwali is right around the corner most of you might have a plan of putting Mehendi this weekend. But do you know about this new trend called white mehndi/henna that is catching up in the west? What is white Mehendi? It is not real henna or Mehendi. The red or the real Mehendi is completely natural and made from the Mehendi plant that gives it a red colour. White henna on the other hand is nothing but body paint which can be mixed and matched with glitter or metallic paints.
